so to be clear: after i record and clean up, do noise reduction, i use ReplayGain to "Analyze" then use Amplify effect to adjust the level of the recording using the value (+ or -) that ReplayGain/Analyze reports? :idea:


a note: i am using Audacity 2.1. In this version there is no "Manage" under "Analyze". However, when you add the ReplayGain file to the Plugin folder it is added to the "Effect" pulldown after restart.

Thanks again.

Yes. :)

I find it estimates a little low, so if it says "3.8" I amplify by 4. It's not exact, but it gets you in the ballpark.

Sections 12 and 13 are PL OK aside from the volume. I went ahead and amplified, and am re-uploading them now, so they're marked OK in the MW.

Starting on 14...

EDIT: Section 14 OK aside from volume. I'll amplify and re-upload this as well.

OK, I'm done for the evening! :lol:

For volume leveling i use Auphonic, because my volume and distance to the microphone varies greatly within a recording. Auphonic.com offer 2 hours free per month. 2 hours was enough for me, but the hassle of uploading and downloading wasn't worth it after i got hooked on it, so i bought the desktop edition. It was maybe $69 when i got it but now seems to be $89. I also use it for my last pass of noise removal. I saw some forum posts that they would offer Libribox administrators free accounts but i dont know if that ever continued. If the free plug in for Audible works for you, that is great. On Auphonic the volume setting is -20LUFTS to get the Librivox desired volume.

Section 34 - well done! The only thing is that the file is longer than 30 minutes, so it needs 10 seconds of silence at the end rather than the usual 5.

Section 30 uploaded for proof listening

35:00

I suspect my next section (31) will also take 2 months. If you had someone that could crank it out faster, i would defer to them, but since there are still open sections, i assume that timing will be ok. i definitely won't sign up for any of the open sections. I just dont seem to have the time these days, but certainly the lessons learned are very interesting to read and to listen to.

let me know about any updates i need to make.

Thanks, Norman!

If it is getting close to that 2-month limit, you might want to post an update so I remember that you're still working on it. The closer we get to completion, the more antsy I get, and I might forget. :roll:
